Always Hope Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
I was inspired to make this bracelet after reading a love story. I chose the message beads and the color purple to represent the hope and peace that is woven throughout the story.
Step one: Use a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube to attach a 10-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to a sterling silver open jump ring. Trim the excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Cover the crimp with a crimp cover. For help using crimp covers visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Connect the jump ring to the loop end of the silver-plated pewter spiral toggle clasp.
Step two: Thread a Swarovski 6mm purple velvet helix and a 4mm round stardust bead. Repeat three times. Add another helix, an antique rhodium hope message bead, a Swarovski 8mm purple velvet faceted round, a pearly purple silver-lined lampwork roundelle and a 12mm crystal faceted round. Reverse the pattern to complete the strand.
Step three: Use a crimp tube to crimp the remaining jewelry wire to a jump ring. Trim the excess wire. Use a crimp cover to cover the crimp tube. Connect the jump ring to the bar end of the toggle clasp.
